Together, Nike and Virgil Abloh redefined sneaker culture for a new generation. The iconic partnership embraced innovation and harnessed creativity to expand the culture of sport for every athlete. Out of respect for Abloh’s wishes and his family, the Swoosh team put a pause on all of his product initiatives with the brand following his tragic passing in November 2021, but after consulting with his wife, Shannon Abloh, it appears that it’s ready to move forward. A flurry of sneaker collaborations designed by the streetwear icon are in the vault waiting to be released, one of which is the Off-White™ x Nike Blazer Low collection that has just been officially announced.

The Blazer is a silhouette known for its hoops heritage and sleek shape, but Abloh completely revamped its construction from top to bottom to transform it into a modern-day classic. The standout component of the model is the rear’s TPU mold which is inspired by the Air Terra Humara’s unique heel shape. Base layers are styled in smooth leather but come hole punched in various parts of the mid-foot and feature a second set of laces that extend past the throat in a similar manner to the previously released Off-White™ x Nike Dunks. Tongues discard the traditional Nike Sportswear logos and come embellished with a “Nike OFF” hit, and the medial sides are printed with Abloh’s signature Helvetica branding. A strip of canvas material acts as the mudguard for each iteration as well.

Check out the gallery above for a closer look at the black and white colorways and expect them to release globally on April 8.
